There’s nothing like a fresh, homemade waffle. And our friends over at King Arthur Flour have reminded us that this IS National Waffle Week, with some recipes and yummy-looking photos. But what’s even more important than the waffle? That’s right–the waffle maker. If you have the right waffle maker, your waffles are guaranteed to be scrumptious, crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, no matter the waffle recipe. Don’t waffle about–make sure you know which one is perfect for you! We’ve gathered ours here, to make it easier than ever for you to decide.

Love a big, round waffle? Then our Pre-Seasoned No-Drip Waffle Iron is for you. The double ridge on the external diameter of the iron keeps the batter where it belongs–in the waffle iron!
